A nation of priorities

BTW, while Halliburton is importing new homeless people, FEMA is about to stop paying for housing for Katrina refugees, which is likely to cause tens of thousands of additional people to become homeless--just in time for winter.

Of course there's no money to take care of hurricane victims, what with nearly $500 billion for the Pentagon having been approved 98-0 by the Senate. Let's see--$500 billion divided by, say, 500,000 Katrina/Rita/Wilma refugees. One million dollars for each person! Instead, FEMA offers no more than $2358 for each FAMILY. Because hey--we've got other countries to destroy. Can't waste money saving ours.
